You may remember he played the enigmatic John Locke for the show’s entire run and played it to the hilt. We’ve always hoped he would return to the island for some more action and now it seems we are getting our wish. How?
Well, according to TV Line, O’Quinn is heading back to the island for a protracted guest arc on the CBS show Hawaii Five-O. The gig not only brings the Emmy winner back to the island, it also reunites him with Lost castmate and Five-0 regular Daniel Dae Kim.
On the show O’Quinn will play a Navy Seal Lt. Commander who trained Alex O’Loughlin’s McGarrett in Coronado, and served with his father in Vietnam. Described as strong, stubborn and a man you want in your corner when things go south, the character holds some of the answers to the mysteries surrounding the respective murders of McGarrett’s mother and father.
Sounds good to us. Guess we’ll have to start watching Hawaii Five-0 again.
